In 2023, the Friends of Mississippi Mills Public Library donated $13,045 – obtained through fundraising efforts. These funds were used to support the library’s fine-free program, the expansion of the Large Print collection, the digital library (eBooks, eAudio, and Kanopy streaming service) and to purchase a new couch for the lounge area by the garden, Almonte branch. These investments have helped improve library service and eliminate financial barriers to service for all residents.

We truly appreciate the Friends’ willingness to help us build a better library for all!
